Jeremy's Christmas mission

JEREMY Stevenson wants you to feel warm inside and will be doing his best to achieve just that when he sings at Sunday night's Carols by Candlelight in Lismore.

The 14-year-old soloist will be performing three songs, Jingle Bell Rock, Rocking Around the Christmas Tree and Joy To The World, all picked for their ability to warm the cockles of the heart.

“I wanted to perform songs that were uplifting,” Jeremy said.

Jeremy is a member of the Alstonville High School Choir, which performed two sets of Christmas carols at Ballina Fair yesterday.

Something of a seasoned performer, Jeremy has made it into the finals of Ballina Idol twice.

“I just love performing,” he said.

Jeremy will share the bill with Mick McHugh, Jodi Coogan, the Blue Hills College Choir, Rahni Lindquist, Charlotte Pearce and Rochelle Lees. Rock outfit The Wolverines, from Sydney, will be the main act.

This year's event will be bigger than ever, with a Christmas Carnival from 1pm until 4pm in Carrington and Magellan streets. There will be free rides, face-painting and a roving balloon clown. Santa will be arriving laden with lollies at 1.45pm. Big Dog will be along at 3pm.

Carols by Candlelight will be held in Riverside Park, from 6pm till 9pm, with proceeds from the sale of glowsticks going to the Southern Cross LADS Inc.
